God is not hurried along in the Time-stream of this universe any more than an author is hurried along in the imaginary time of his his own novel. He has infinite attention for each of us.

Just a thought: What does it say about God that when Moses asks for His name (Exodus 3:13) God simply says "I AM WHO I AM"? You can come up with all sorts of magnificent titles and descriptions for God and His attributes, but He chose to go by "I AM" instead.

Most men will content themselves and quiet their consciences by avoiding the more gross acts of sin, by avoiding an outward gratification of lusts; but it becomes Christians to distinguish themselves here, and avoid sinning so much as in their thoughts, not to indulge any lust so much as in their imagination.

-Jonathan Edwards, Christians A Chosen Generation, A Royal Priesthood

I fix my eyes ahead.

Prepare in urgency to race
Casting off the wieght that burdens me
I cannot dare to force the pace
Marathon for life the road I face

My gaze is set on finishing

I’m straining to extend my lead
With every evil chasing me
One day, one hour, every step

I know
I know
I fix
my eyes

Straining on to run without remorse
Casting off mistakes that came before
In my mind I see a hallowed door
Open arm embrace, I’m reaching for...

Just like a breeze is passing me
My stammers, a distant memory
We cannot afford a glance to see
What’s gaining or what is history

Who do I belong to?

Who do I belong To?
Not Earth
Not world
Not Evil
Not mortals
Not wretches
Not horrors

Who do I belong to?
